Innovative Research in Cancer Nanotechnology (IRCN) (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
National Institutes of Health
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled "Innovative Research in Cancer Nanotechnology (IRCN)" encourages applications promoting transformative discoveries in cancer biology and/or oncology through the use of nanotechnology. Proposed projects should address major barriers in cancer biology and/or oncology using nanotechnology and should emphasize mechanistic studies toward fundamental understanding of nanomaterial and/or nanodevice interactions with biological systems. These studies should be performed in context of research concerning the delivery of nanoparticles and/or nano-devices to desired and intended cancer targets in vivo and/or characterization of detection and diagnostic devices in vitro. IRCN awards are expected to produce fundamental knowledge to aid future and more informed development of nanotechnology-based cancer interventions.
